Truck split on Patton St

HOUSTON (KTRK) -- A trucker began their morning with a pretty incredible mess on their hands.

The driver of this 18-wheeler pulled into the Love's truck stop on Patton Street and the North Freeway overnight, and that is where the trailer buckled under the weight of its load.

The twisted metal would suggest some sort of accident. Believe it or not, hundreds of cases of Ozarka bottled water is to blame in the trailer's collapse.

It was expected to take several hours to unload the trailer's contents by hand.

There is no word yet why the trailer split. Fortunately, there were no injuries.
